Less is More Week 89

I’ve started sooner with this week’s LIM challenge, after I messed up my timing last week!  So, today’s creation is a one layer card with the theme of ‘wings’.  It exercised my little grey cells a bit to come up with something a bit different and in the end I decided on a ladybird … partly because I just think they’re lovely delicate things and partly because I wanted something to match the sentiment I came up with!  OK, this one doesn’t have her wings open but hey, there are wings there somewhere!

The one layer bit is interesting … don’t think I’ve done a card before without things attached … I managed to fight the urge to add layers and embellishments, and limited myself to three black gems for the ladybird’s dots (does that still qualify for one layer or should I have used liquid pearls??) and some doodling.  It stretched my creativity a little (a very good thing!) and doing it helped me to learn some more about less is more and keeping it simple!

Here’s the recipe:  Cardstock:  Crafter’s Companion, Stamp:  Stampendous, Ink:  Hobbycraft, Colour:  Promarker, Fineliner:  American Crafts, Gems:  Papermania, Sentiment:  Computer Generated.

Hope you had a happy, crafting weekend … Anita
